Question about Apple MacBook PC Notebook
On opening boot-up two black vertical bands one inch wide appear and cannot expand to full size screen dimensions. Already tried changing display dimension(resolution)

SOURCE: display size / resolution
just gonna toss out a couple of questions here: 1) what do your startup items contain? since login and bootup sequence finishes completely (i.e., you see a dock and top menu), this sounds like a startup procedure kicking in. i'd look at startup items in your /Library and ~/Library directories, as well as maybe even /System/Library/StartupItems. something is resizing your monitor upon startup but only after full login and bootup. 2) Assuming the problem hasn't always existed, can you time it to a particular period of time? have you tried going into ~/Library/Preferences and viewing by modification date and pulling out a modified .plist file that would have to do with your screen resolution or virtualization of your screen, even just the standard com.apple.display.plist type stuff?
hope that helps!
